    Excellent summary, as an owner of the 3 cyl CVT in the UK this article has pretty much nailed it for the American market.
    In crowded cities or even smaller towns its perfect but beyond that environment its down to maybe just wanting a smaller motoring footprint or needing a minimalist second car. When pushing design limits I wish designers would solve the problems they create. By making any car short the ride suffers so something has to be done to artificially extend the wheel base. This has been accomplished in the past by interconnecting the front and rear suspension which seems to have been forgotten. NO doubt cost is a main concern but the price for the IQ is hard to justify as it is.
